Chefs Michael Howell and Dave Smart join us at 8:15 to chat about the 5th annual slow food Spring Supper and the official launch of the newly-formed East Coast Chefs Collaborative, a group of seven Nova Scotian chefs working together to put their mark on local and sustainable Nova Scotian cuisine. It’s being held this weekend in conjunction with Slow Food by The Sea: 2014 Slow Food Canada Conference. The six-course locally-sourced meal will be paired with Nova Scotian wines and feature an opening oyster reception with select oysters from various producers in Northern Nova Scotia. Local food producers, farmers, winemakers and foodies alike round out this incredible evening.

It’s an annual spring event – the Battle of the Atlantic Musical Gala that commemorates the 71st anniversary of the infamous battle. The musical evening features appearances by the Stadacona Band of the Royal Canadian Navy as well as Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo Children’s Choir. At 8:45 Paul will speak with petty officer Mike Tutton, who will be performing Tuesday night.
